Intel® AMT Reflector is a software tool designed to allow local management of Intel® AMT Mangement Engine functionality from the local operating system. Removing the need to reboot to verify and change the Intel® AMT host computer name or un-provision Intel® AMT on the computer. This functionality improves debug and factory operations in activating and building Intel® AMT based client environments. This release completes DOPD SW Engineering's original functionality plan for the tool and is therefore marked as a production level release.

 

This release has the following updates from the Beta release:

 

· Added a timestamp to Intel® AMT events in the logs generated by the client-side applications.

· Fixed the XML logfile format so that it will be properly recognized by external applications that support the XML file format.

· Fixed the issue where some commands may not succeed on the first call for some Intel(R) AMT systems.

· Fixed the "Browse" button functionality in the Intel(R) AMT Reflector Server configuration window.

· The Intel® AMT Reflector Server now logs the client FQDN for each event.

· Removed the View Log window from the Intel® AMT Reflector Client application.

· Improved the error handling of the Intel® AMT Reflector Client application.

Background -

 

The Intel Setup and Configuration Service for Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) is a free toolset that simplifies the preparation of hardware that supports Intel AMT for remote administration.

 

Intel SCS automates the process of populating Intel AMT managed platforms with the usernames, passwords, and network parameters that enable the platforms to be administered remotely.

 

The automation of these activates provide an efficient means of implementing Intel AMT hardware for enterprise customers.

 

The Intel SCS service works with other services in order to provide a secure setup and configuration infrastructure for Intel AMT devices.

 

To successfully take advantage of the functionality that the Intel SCS service can provide, all of the other needed services must be correctly installed and configured. These services include:

 

Microsoft SQL* Server

Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0

Microsoft Certificate Authority

Active Directory

 

Installing and configuring all of the services needed to utilize the Intel SCS can take an experienced user 2+ hours to complete. Using the automation provided by the SCS Setup Wizard, this process can take less than 30 minutes.

 

SCS setup Wizard Performs the following functions -

 

Install/configure MS SQL Server 2005 Express* Edition and MS SQL Server Management Studio Express

Install/configure Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0

Install/configure MS Certificate Authority*

Install/configure Active Directory Services

Install certificate for IIS

Install certificate for Intel AMT Client

Install/configure Intel SCS service

The USB Key Provisioning Utility (UKPU) tool is designed to create a valid USB key for provisioning Intel® AMT Systems. The UKPU tool prepares a USB Flash drive, copies the requested setup.bin to the drive, and also verifies that the setup.bin is saved using the proper procedures necessary to ensure that it is detected by Intel® AMT.

 

The tool has a 'repair' mode that allows you to take an existing USB Key and reconstruct it to ensure the setup.bin is visible to Intel® AMT. In addition, you can set up a USB Key using any renamed setup.bin file on your computer, and the tool will automatically ensure it is renamed to 'setup.bin' when setting up the key.

Both binary only & open source licensed source versions available at the download site.

Today we offer the USB Key Provisioning Utility (UKPU) focused on one-touch provisioning and the Intel® AMT Reflector which offers a unique implimentation allowing an Intel® AMT client to access/manage some Intel® AMT functionality locally via the OS without entering the management engine directly (usually via BIOS).

Today we are announcing version 1.0.5.4 of the packet decoder. This version includes some minor bug fixes as well as two important enhancements:

 

+ Prerelease* support for Intel® AMT Versions 4 & 5

+ Results search & sort

+ Logging

*Due to hardware availability, not all constructs have been tested

 

These enhancements are in direct response to user requests.

 

Here's a 5 minute movie on the tool.

 

We are currently reviewing other user's feedback to determine what the next update will contain and when it will be available. Stay tuned.

Update: The SCS Setup Wizard was EOLed to make way for a new and improved tool - the Intel AMT Configuration Utility. This utility is included in the Intel SCS 7.0 download. Check it out!

 

Available for download and use is the SCS Setup Wizard, a tool designed to automate the installation of the Intel® Setup and Configuration Service (SCS) along with the third party pre-requisite components automatically. This is a pre-release alpha level project that will be updated soon. It requires a fresh install of Windows Server 2003 and un-provisioned Intel® AMT clients.

Last month's post of the open source packet decoder is just the first of a strong list of tools planned by the team that brings you the Technology Test Utility. The iCSO software engineering team is charted with making utilities and applications available to the public that accelerate and simplify the adoption and activation of Intel vPro technology.

 

We will be maintaining these tools and look forward to your feedback, suggestions, and participation in making these tools the best they can be for you and the marketplace. Our commitment is to post new versions of each tool at least every other month and of course post earlier if issues are found that render the tool less than useful.

 

The next tool we will be posting is a Pre-Installation Utility intended to speed the first user experience and automate as much as possible the initial setup of the Intel® AMT(tm) Setup and Configuration (aka SCS) environment in enterprise mode. Coupled with post setup wizards it will enable users to provision devices with minimal effort and time.

 

 

We look forward to hearing your feedback on our efforts.
